YOUR WEDDING AT BLUE LAKE

Bring your two families together to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Blue Lake Camp is the ideal location for a do-it-yourself Kootenay destination wedding! Our outdoor facility is located just 45 minutes South of Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, and 70 minutes North of Cranbrook, BC. Wedding packages are a full weekend get-away and include use of the entire facility for 2 nights allowing you time to fully enjoy your big day. Time spent canoeing around Blue Lake, hiking our trail system, and laughing around the camp fire allows family and friends the chance to create memories together.
